Nikki Finke has the “exclusive” :
Christoph Waltz who won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival for playing a Nazi in Inglourious Basterds (and is a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination) has now been cast as villain Chudnofsky in Sony’s The Green Hornet opposite Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz. Since Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds came out — and crossed the $100M mark this weekend — Waltz has been offered a lot of big movies by a lot of big directors. And he’s getting big bucks now. How great he’s found success at age 52.
Michael Gondry replaces Stephen Chow. Christoph Waltz replaces Nicolas Cage. Now if only they can find somebody to replace Seth Rogen and Cameron Diaz we might have ourselves a movie.
